#1. I know I want out of this mess. I want out. No one will ever love me, I will live and die alone, I will go nowhere fast, I will be nothing at all. Nothing will work out. The promise that on the other side of depression lies a beautiful life, one worth surviving suicide for, will have turned out wrong. It will all be a big dupe. - Author: Elizabeth Wurtzel
Dupe quotes by Elizabeth Wurtzel
#2. PALMISTRY, n. The 947th method ... of obtaining money by false pretences [by] "reading character" in the wrinkles [of] the hand. The pretence is not altogether false ... for the wrinkles in every hand submitted plainly spell the word "dupe." - Author: Ambrose Bierce
Dupe quotes by Ambrose Bierce

Dupe quotes by Percy Bysshe Shelley
#4. While the Zionists try to make the rest of the World believe that the national consciousness of the Jew finds its satisfaction in the creation of a Palestinian state, the Jews again slyly dupe the dumb Goyim. It doesn't even enter their heads to build up a Jewish state in Palestine for the purpose of living there; all they want is a central organisation for their international world swindler, endowed with its own sovereign rights and removed from the intervention of other states: a haven for convicted scoundrels and a university for budding crooks.
It is a sign of their rising confidence and sense of security that at a time when one section is still playing the German, French-man, or Englishman, the other with open effrontery comes out as the Jewish race. - Author: Adolf Hitler
Dupe quotes by Adolf Hitler
#5. As to the deceit perpetrated upon women, let it pass, for, when love is in the way, men and women as a general rule dupe each other. - Author: Giacomo Casanova
Dupe quotes by Giacomo Casanova
#6. Perhaps it is better to wake up after all, even to suffer, rather than to remain a dupe to illusions all one's life. - Author: Kate Chopin
Dupe quotes by Kate Chopin
#7. The human comedy is always tragic, but since its ingredients are always the same - dupe, fox, straight, like burlesque skits - the repetition through the ages is comedy. - Author: Dawn Powell
Dupe quotes by Dawn Powell
#8. I have not been thy dupe, nor am thy prey
But was my own destroyer, and will be
My own hereafter. - Author: Lord Byron
Dupe quotes by Lord Byron
#9. advanced socialbot software, a program to create and operate fake profiles that looked and acted like real people on Circles. Socialbots were designed to befriend real Circles users and dupe them into divulging their sensitive personal and financial information. - Author: Scott Allan Morrison
Dupe quotes by Scott Allan Morrison
#10. She was truthful, or I was the greatest dupe who ever existed. I can only believe in our ecstasy. I don't want to know, I only want to love her. - Author: Anais Nin
Dupe quotes by Anais Nin
#11. The bonds between ourselves and another person exists only in our minds. Memory as it grows fainter loosens them, and notwithstanding the illusion by which we want to be duped and which, out of love, friendship, politeness, deference, duty, we dupe other people, we exist alone. Man is the creature who cannot escape from himself, who knows other people only in himself, and when he asserts the contrary, he is lying. - Author: Marcel Proust
Dupe quotes by Marcel Proust
#12. Gods, I love this place," Locke said, drumming his fingers against his thighs. "Sometimes I think this whole city was put here simply because the gods must adore crime. Pickpockets rob the common folk, merchants rob anyone they can dupe, Capa Barsavi robs the robbers and the common folk, the lesser nobles rob nearly everyone, and Duke Nicovante occasionally runs off with his army and robs the shit out of Tal Verarr or Jerem, not to mention what he does to his own nobles and his common folk. - Author: Scott Lynch
Dupe quotes by Scott Lynch
#13. When I argue with devout statists, sometimes other voluntaryists tell me that I'm wasting my time, opining that a particular statist is never going to "get it." I often respond by saying that that's rarely my intention. Most of the time, when I argue with statists, the goal is for ME to learn more about the mentality and psychology of authoritarian indoctrination, and to hopefully help any SPECTATORS--whether statist or anarchist--learn something from the exchange. (Both of those goals can be achieved even if the statist continues to be a lunk-headed dupe.) Earlier today, a funny but possibly profound analogy came to mind about this:

When I argue with "true believer" devout statists, I'm not being a doctor trying to heal an ailing patient; I'm being a coroner, doing an AUTOPSY on a patient who is already beyond any hope of saving, in the hopes that I, and anyone observing, may learn more about the "disease" of statism, in order to better understand the nature of it, and possibly prevent others from experiencing a similar fate. - Author: Larken Rose
Dupe quotes by Larken Rose
#14. That is why any general, however wrong he may be--take Napoleon, to avoid the politics of mere contemporary examples--must believe in himself to be successful, or dupe himself into such a belief. Indeed, that is the main job of all politicians who, through their own inefficiency, muddle nations into war. If they do not fool themselves into the assumption that they are God-fearing idealists, they will never get the millions who must pay for their damage to believe the same thing, and they will lose the war. - Author: J. Jefferson Farjeon
Dupe quotes by J. Jefferson Farjeon
#15. A man is his own easiest dupe, for what he wishes to be true he generally believes to be true. - Author: Demosthenes
Dupe quotes by Demosthenes
#16. You think him to be your dupe; if he feigns to be so who is the greater dupe, he or you? - Author: Jean De La Bruyere
Dupe quotes by Jean De La Bruyere
#17. Many self-help books give you these neat, tidy formulas that are really illusions. They dupe people into thinking, 'Well if I can just do that, then everything's going to be okay.' My work differs in that I don't offer quick solutions and simple explanations. - Author: John Bradshaw
Dupe quotes by John Bradshaw
#18. In his entire output, I can find only one piece of genuine unfairness: a thuggish attack on the poetry of WH Auden, whom he regarded as a dupe of the Communist Party. But even this was softened in some later essays. The truth is that he disliked Auden's homosexuality, and could not get over his prejudice. But much of the interest of Orwell lies in the fact that he was born prejudiced, so to speak, against Jews and the coloured peoples of the empire, and against the poor and uneducated, and against women and intellectuals - and managed, in a transparent and unique way, to educate himself out of this fog of bigotry (though he never did get over his aversion to 'pansies'). - Author: Christopher Hitchens
Dupe quotes by Christopher Hitchens
#19. It may be remarked in passing that success is an ugly thing. Men are deceived by its false resemblances to merit. To the crowd, success wears almost the features of true mastery, and the greatest dupe of this counterfeit talent is History. - Author: Victor Hugo
Dupe quotes by Victor Hugo
#20. He also made all Muslims publicly forswear that part of their Holy Quran which permits them to dupe, cheat and kill all who are not of Islam. - Author: Gary Jennings
Dupe quotes by Gary Jennings
#21. The romance that has surrounded the Beat generation since the mid-Sixties has acted as a kind of sentimental glaze, obscuring its fundamentally nihilistic impulse under a heap of bogus rhetoric about liberation, spontaneity, and 'startling oases of creativity', Notwithstanding their recent media media make-over, the Beats were not Promethean iconoclasts. They were drug-abusing sexual predators and infantilized narcissists whose shamelessness helped dupe a confused and gullible public into believing that their utterances were works of genius. We have to thank Lisa Phillips and the Whitney for inadvertently reminding us of this with such vividness. If nothing else, 'Beat Culture and the New America' showed that the Beats were not simply artistic charlatans; the were -- and, in the case of those who are still with us, they remain -- moral simpletons, whose destructive influence helped fuel the cultural catastrophe with which we are now living. - Author: Roger Kimball
Dupe quotes by Roger Kimball
#22. Every man is his own greatest dupe. - Author: William Rounseville Alger
Dupe quotes by William Rounseville Alger
#23. The height the dupe has fallen is measured by his anger. - Author: John Fowles
Dupe quotes by John Fowles
#24. Man is the yokel par excellence, the booby unmatchable, the king dupe of the cosmos. He is chronically and unescapably deceived, not only by the other animals and by the delusive face of nature herself
by his incomparable talent for searching out and embracing what is false, and for overlooking and denying what is true. - Author: H.L. Mencken
Dupe quotes by H.L. Mencken
#25. The weak-minded man is the slave of his vices and the dupe of his virtues. - Author: Jean Antoine Petit-Senn
Dupe quotes by Jean Antoine Petit-Senn
#26. The ancient gentleman who has seen the world, who is profoundly experienced, and much too deep to be the dupe of an age so shallow as this, is to be won by an admiring glance at the brilliancy of his knee-buckle; praise his very pigtail, and you may lead him by it. - Author: Samuel Laman Blanchard
Dupe quotes by Samuel Laman Blanchard
#27. The greatest joy a petty soul can taste is to dupe a great soul and catch it in a snare. - Author: Honore De Balzac
Dupe quotes by Honore De Balzac
#28. PHRENOLOGY, n. The science of picking the pocket through the scalp. It consists in locating and exploiting the organ that one is a dupe with. - Author: Ambrose Bierce
Dupe quotes by Ambrose Bierce
#29. I believe you to be Filidor Vesh," said the dwarf.

"You are entitled to your beliefs, however ill-founded," Filidor replied. "No doubt you will wish to search further for this Vesh, rather than impose your presence upon a man called hence by urgent affairs."

The dwarf transferred his grip from Filidor's mantle to his arm. His gaze swept quickly over the young man's features. "This belief is supported by the evidence, since you answer to a point the description furnished me."

"You are plainly the dupe of some prankster, who abuses the dignity of your years by sending you on a fool's errand," said Filidor. "Were I you, I would seek out the rascal and thrash him. - Author: Matthew Hughes
Dupe quotes by Matthew Hughes
#30. The surest way of making a dupe is to let your victim suppose you are his. - Author: Bill Vaughan
Dupe quotes by Bill Vaughan
#31. He's as bad as my mother. Maybe worse. He's a market-research consultant. He studies people's facial expressions to see how they feel about commercials and products. He used to be a psychologist but he makes more money helping big corporations dupe the public. The worst part is he can look at your face and say 'Your upper lip just twitched! Anger! You're angry. Don't try to hide it from me, young man. Why does it make you angry when I say those pants make you look like a girl? Doe you have something against girls? Perhaps some unresolved Oedipal feelings? - Author: Natalie Standiford
Dupe quotes by Natalie Standiford
#32. This is not a con game in the criminal sense, in which con artists deliberately dupe the suckers. Instead it's a form of good salesmanship, where the first principle is to sell yourself first. We sell ourselves on the value of education in solving social problems, and then we buy what we're selling. The whole thing rests on the uncertain foundation of our collective willingness to continue to believe the con. Whatever the problem, we continue to keep the faith in schools as the answer. - Author: David Labaree
Dupe quotes by David Labaree
#33. In friendship, as well as in love, the mind is often the dupe of the heart. - Author: Lord Chesterfield
Dupe quotes by Lord Chesterfield
#34. When the spirit is not master of the world, then it is its dupe. - Author: Ralph Waldo Emerson
Dupe quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#35. It is easy to become the dupe of a deferred purpose, of the promise the future can never keep ... - Author: Jane Addams
Dupe quotes by Jane Addams
#36. If often happens too, both in courts and in cabinets, that there are two things going on together,
a main plot and an under-plot; and he that understands only one of them will, in all probability, be the dupe of both. A mistress may rule a monarch, but some obscure favorite may rule the mistress. - Author: Charles Caleb Colton
Dupe quotes by Charles Caleb Colton
#37. We live in the midst of a gloomy society. Success; that is the lesson which falls drop by drop from the slope of corruption.
Be it said in passing, that success is a very hideous thing. Its false resemblance to merit deceives men. For the masses, success has almost the same profile as supremacy. Success, that Menaechmus of talent, has one dupe,
history. - Author: Victor Hugo
Dupe quotes by Victor Hugo
#38. In vain we shall penetrate more and more deeply the secrets of the structure of the human body, we shall not dupe nature; we shall die as usual. - Author: Bernard Le Bovier De Fontenelle
Dupe quotes by Bernard Le Bovier De Fontenelle
